Wagering on Our Future

As I watched Donald Trump’s Truth Social post showing a picture of a hog-tied President Biden painted on to the tailgate of a pickup, my stomach acids ran up my esophagus and burned my throat.

With tears forming in my eyes, I thought, “He’s one sick puppy. A psychopath and a sociopath all wrapped up in one demented mind. One big pile of excrement. One big calculating son-of-a bitch.”

Does he want President Biden assassinated?

Of course he does.

Is that his goal?

You bet it is.

If so, then what’s his next move?

Hawking posters, bumper stickers and flags with pictures of a hog-tied President Biden on them.

Posting a video of Biden riding in a convertible in Dealey Plaza, past the Texas School Book Depository and having his head blown off.

Is he so evil?

Stupid question.

Of course he is.

Has he no code of moral conduct—No moral compass?

Of course he does not.

I know he’s not a student of history but as a gambling man, I got some wagers for you.

I bet he doesn’t know that Oswald could have been a Russian or Cuban agent made to appear as a crazy ex-marine.

I bet he’s never heard the name, “Yitzhak Rabin” or what happened to him.

I bet he doesn’t know that John Wilkes Booth’s original plan was to hog-tie President Lincoln, throw him in a wagon and hold him for ransom to save the Confederacy.

So is he intentionally trying to get one of his mentally ill minions (and there are many) to harm the President of the United States?

I bet he is.

And while we’re wagering:

I bet he thinks posting a hog-tied Biden on Truth Social is hilarious.

I bet before going to bed, he prays that the hog-tie post happens.

I bet this despicable representation of a human being laughs at the serious injuries that he caused the Capitol Police on January 6th?

I bet he laughs his head off at the thought that his Proud Boys tried to hang his VP.

I bet he wished that he was the guy standing on the Capitol steps handing them the nooses.

I bet he wished he had declared martial law on January 6th and thereby destroyed America.

I bet he was pissed off that his Proud Boys failed to hog-tie members of Congress and thereby prevent them from certifying Biden as President.

I bet he knew why Proud Boys brought plastic handcuffs to the Capitol Building on January 6th..

I bet Trump will claim he never realized his posts, his words and/or his actions were incendiary?

I bet as his poll numbers tank, he and his supporters will get desperate.

I bet they’ll decide the only way he’ll win the election by default—by eliminating the opposition.

Yes, the way dictators do it in the banana republics.

Or as Trump’s friend, Putin, does it in Russia.

I bet Trump thinks, “I’ll never face consequences for my abhorrent, criminal behavior?

I bet Trump thinks, “I’m the only man in America who can yell, “Fire” in a crowded theater.

And if a tragedy occurs, I bet Trump will say, “I didn’t think anybody would be crazy enough to listen to me after what happened on January 6th?”

And I bet the courts will never craft a preemptive order hog-tying Trump from posting direct or indirect threats against the life of the President.

How sad.
